Opportunity for Fulbright U.S Scholars in Brazil



The 2017-2018 Fulbright U.S. Scholar competition is underway and is currently welcoming applications from scholars interested in teaching or conducting research in Brazil. The program is actively seeking faculty, research scholars and professionals of all career stages to engage in grant activities to foster education, collaborate on new ideas and share resources in the country. For these awards, Portuguese or Spanish proficiency is not required.

With more flexible research and teaching options, as well as numerous opportunities for early career and non-tenured scholars, we encourage you to consider applying for a Fulbright Scholar grant to Brazil.


  • All Disciplines (7449)
  • Postdoctoral Scholar Award in All Disciplines (7450)
  • Fulbright-FACEPE Distinguished Chair in STEM (7452)
  • Fulbright Distinguished Chair in International Relations at University of Sao Paulo (7453)

For further awards in your field, please visit our website. There you will find award highlights and examples of past successful projects. Our website also features regular webinar information sessions (including the recent Fulbright Opportunities to Brazil and an upcoming Western Hemisphere Virtual Advising session).

Applicants must be U.S. citizens and the application deadline for the 2017-18 cycle is August 1, 2016, leaving ample time to begin an application.

If any questions arise about the Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program, opportunities to Brazil, or any other matters, please feel free to reach out; we’re happy to assist.
